Soon to be new jeep

Im looking at picking up a YJ 93 4.0 5speed that is in good running condition.

Current mods are bedliner on the floor, 4in suspension lift, 2in shackle lift both pretty new rough country, new 35in m/t tires but here is the problem it has stock gearing and drivetrain.

I went for a drive in it yesterday and it seems to wander around the road. Is there a way to fix that?

I dont plan on doing crazy offroading atm but do want to hit some mild trails. Will the d35 just exploid on me with the stock drivetrain/gears the way it is on 35's?

The guy Im buying it from uses it as a dd and doesnt take it offroad. It seems to be well taken care.

I dont know much about jeeps so I'm hoping you can tell me if this is going to be ok or nothing but a huge problem in the future.

The wandering around the road may be a result of a bad steering stabilizer. That's the shock looking thing that is horizontal under the front end. I just put one on my '93 and it helped a bunch.
